Tours and Camps – Coronavirus Response

Guidelines for all campus visitors

To protect the health and safety of our campus and local communities, all Duke visitors are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before coming to campus. Visitors must also comply with Duke health and safety standards and guidelines.

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe – we’re all in this together.

2022 Residential Summer Camps and Programs

  • All participants in residential camps and programs must be vaccinated or have a medical or religious exemption.
  • All residential camp and program participants must have a negative COVID test (PCR) 72 hours prior to arrival on campus. Participants will be required to submit documents during the admissions process. (Note: Participants who have tested positive within the last 90 days and have completed their required isolation period should bring a dated copy of the positive test result to show during the admissions process. Those who have not have not completed their required isolation period will have to wait to do so before coming to campus.)
  • Each program must have a designated COVID coordinator who will be responsible for verifying vaccination status and a negative test within 72 hours of arrival for campers and program staff. No medical documents will be collected other than a form confirming vaccination status during the admission process.
  • Student Health will perform symptomatic testing of participants for camps and programs that have a contract for the service; otherwise, participants should be tested at an outside facility (eg, emergency care, pharmacy). Any participant who tests positive will be removed from participation. Youth residential camp participants will be isolated in a single residence until a parent or designated adult caregiver can pick up the individual.
